St. Thomas, VI (PRWEB) April 27, 2014
Trevor Connor DDS offers leading cosmetic dentistry in St. Thomas at the Connor Dental Center for Implant Dentistry and Orthodontics, now including a new technique for veneers that does not involve any permanent cement or removal of enamel. Dr. Connor recently completed training to offer new cosmetic dental services, called Lumineers. Lumineers are similar in many ways to the traditional porcelain veneers that Dr. Connor has used for many years, except Lumineers do not require removal of the patient's natural tooth enamel in most cases.
For many people who have lived with discolored or stained teeth that detract from a stunning smile, veneers are a perfect solution. Dr. Connor begins with a consultation and exam, assessing the patient's teeth and discussing options. With the traditional porcelain veneer option available in cosmetic dentistry in St. Thomas, Dr. Connor would prepare the patient's teeth by grinding away a very thin layer of enamel (about .05 millimeter), taking an impression, and creating custom fitted porcelain shells to be permanently attached to the patient's teeth with dental cement.
With Lumineers, there is no shaving off a portion of outer enamel, as they are designed and custom made to fit over the natural teeth. As a cosmetic dental service that uses no glue or cement, the process is reversible at a later time if the patient desires. The new technique is not for everyone, as some teeth with deep stains or discoloration may require more opaque veneers .Those who grind their teeth may be at risk of damaging the edges of Lumineers.
